Nationals sign C Miguel Montero to minor league deal with invite to Spring Training
WASHINGTON– The Washington Nationals are looking to bolster their catching depth.
The team has signed C Miguel Montero to a minor league deal with an invite to Spring Training.
Montero, 34, split 2017 playing for the Chicago Cubs and Toronto Blue Jays, hitting a career-low .216 with 6 HRs and 16 RBI’s.
A lefty swinger, Montero has been long-valued as an offensive weapon behind the plate.
If Montero were to make the Nationals’ club out of Spring Training, his contract would reportedly pay him $1.3 million with a chance to make another $1.7 million in incentives.
